Delaina Engberg is an American interdisciplinary artist, writer, and curator currently based in Madrid, Spain. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting, with a minor in History and Theory of Contemporary Art, from the San Francisco Art Institute.

She uses an array of mediums to meditate on the psychics of space and, specifically, uses painting to guide investigations of intimacy, boundaries, of bodies coming and going, and remnants of bodies in space. Her main goals as a scholar and writer are delving into how women artists create meaning and find voices through their work and exploring the limits of academic language by and with poetic language. She feels strongly that the beauty of writing and language is the realization you will never say exactly everything that needs to be said, but, in that, there is a freedom to say everything you can.

She has curated several shows including; “Poetry as Critical Form”, “New Images of Woman”, “Room of One’s Own”, and “History/ Archeology/ Genealogy” at the Diego Rivera Gallery at 800 Chestnut St., San Francisco, CA. She has also written “Jorge Borges’ On the Exactitude of Science; Ways We Visualize the Ineffable”  for the exhibition  “What Lies Between” at the Shafer Gallery at Fort Mason. She is currently working at Est_Art Space in Madrid whilst completing her first book of poetry.

Jeremiah Ciardullo is an Online Author for Beautiful Bizarre Magazine.

I’ve been a self taught artist since I was five years old when I was originally a lefty but my mother taught me to be a righty due to some superstitions and stating,  “It’ll be easier for you to adapt to a world where the majority are right handed.” She always worried if her decision had affected my creative side until I continued illustrating Mother’s Day cards and other special occasion cards for her as well as, just illustrating for the love of it. I suppose one would say I was destined to love nothing else.
My mother was an incredible poet I am survived by. She was always proud of my art works and my greatest fan. There was a time I chased after the rich man’s gold forgoing my passions, stumbling and always falling short. Forgetting that all I needed was in my soul.
So to honor my mother and the song Simple Man she dedicated to me by Lynyrd Skynyrd, I continue to live out my love of creating in all the avenues I’m passionate about, a few of which being on display for you today.
I welcome you to my Instagram to follow the white rabbit to all of my other passions.
